Unexpected, accelarated polar melting

“Geneva Icecaps around the North and South Poles are melting faster and in a more widespread way than expected, raising sea levels and worsening climate change, according to a scientific survey.

The International Polar Year survey found that warming in the Antarctic was “much more widespread than was thought”, while Arctic sea ice was diminishing and the melting of Greenland’s ice cover was accelerating.”
